Bond Money Included in Governor's Budget for Treutlen School
Thursday, 15 January 2009

January 15--  Five area school systems are in line to benefit from school construction bonds included in Governor Sonny Perdue's budget for next year.  Treutlen County schools would recieve $18,140,000 which School Superintendent Chuck Ellington says will build a new K-12 school complex at a location to be determined.  Also on the Governor's bond list is $1,090,000 for Jeff Davis County, $650,000 for Wheeler County, $276,906 for Tattnall County and $46,151 for Candler County schools.

As part of his Fiscal Year 2010 Budget recommendation, Governor Sonny Perdue proposed a $318 million bond package to support the construction of classrooms across Georgia. 

In his State of the State Address, the Governor noted that opportunity begins in the classroom.  The classroom construction bond package is part of the $1.2 billion in projects that the Governor proposed in his FY10 budget proposal, which was presented yesterday to the Georgia General Assembly during the Governor’s State of the State Address.

“This year’s bond package, totaling over $1.2 billion in new investment, will put Georgians to work and build critical infrastructure,” said Governor Sonny Perdue. “In a time that we have trimmed our budget in other areas, we are aggressively increasing our bond package by a full twenty percent over last year.  This will take advantage of low construction costs and create an estimated 20,000 new jobs in an industry that is ready to go to work.”

A list of the counties and the amount received for classroom construction is below:
